SANTA BARBARA, Calif., May 11, 2021 (News) — Sientra, Inc. (NASDAQ: SIEN) (“Sientra” or the “Company”), a medical aesthetics company uniquely focused on plastic surgeons, today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its miraDry business to 1315 Capital, a healthcare growth equity firm investing in commercial stage companies across medical devices, healthcare services, and therapeutics. Subject to certain terms and conditions, the transaction is expected to close within the next 30 days.

“Sientra’s strategic decision to focus investment on its core Breast Products business constrained our ability to maximize the miraDry opportunity given the different business models,” said Ron Menezes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sientra. “We are delighted to have found the best partner in 1315 Capital who has recognized the untapped potential of the miraDry business and is committed to serving and growing the current installed base of over 1,600 miraDry systems. The Sientra team will be working side-by-side with 1315 Capital to ensure a smooth transition for our existing miraDry customers.”

“The sale of miraDry will enable Sientra to focus on our core Breast Products business and the plastic surgery channel,” continued Mr. Menezes. “Our team is more energized than ever to concentrate on our rapidly growing Breast Products business within both the augmentation and reconstruction markets by targeting market share expansion with existing and new accounts and executing on our development pipeline that will extend or evolve our offerings. I am confident that Sientra is now in the best position possible to become a leader of transformative treatments and technologies focused on progressing the art of plastic surgery.”

“Our team has been actively evaluating the aesthetics capital and consumables space for several years as an investment theme, and we are excited by the demonstrated efficacy and growth potential of miraDry,” said Adele C. Oliva, Founding Partner of 1315 Capital. “We look forward to investing behind miraDry and expanding its reach to help provide relief to patients with sweat concerns all over the globe.”

“I’d like to thank Sientra for their custodianship of miraDry and partnership during this transition,” said Arash Khazei, who will be Chief Executive Officer of the miraDry business. “In concert with 1315 Capital, we plan to focus on our customers to help expand miraDry through excellence in service, support, training, and collaboration.”
